Nnamdi Kanu is responsible for Sowore’s arrest-Kemi Olunloyo

Controversial social media personality Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo has again raised a contentious issue on Twitter. This time, she said Nnamdi Kanu is responsible for the arrest of Sahara Reporters founder Omoyele Sowore.

Sowore was planning what he described as a massive protest against bad governance in Nigeria when he was arrested on August 3 by the officials of the DSS at his hotel room in the Lagos.

In one of the videos, he was quoted as saying the protest would lead to an overhaul of government institutions.

Before the aborted August 5 #RevolutionNow protest, Sowore had met with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Kanu to brief him about the planned protest.

Sowore was quoted as saying, “We met to talk about things we’ve both been passionate about but on a different plane and we respect those boundaries but we’ve had very useful conversations today so that everybody that is aspiring for a fair and just society can come together and rise up now and bring an end to the sorrow and suffering and the domination and the oppression that has become almost synonymous with our generation and our genes in Nigeria.

Sowore was the candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2019 general elections which he lost.

Reacting to the continued detention of Sowore, Kemi said, “Nnamdi Kanu is responsible for Sowore’s arrest.”

She also lambasted followers of the IPOB leader, saying, “All Biafrans outside prison are nonentities. Have you focused on all the #Ipob boys you abandoned in Port Harcourt prison? Many are suffering, some dead from Hunger. You dumb separatists cannot ruin Nigeria.”

Sowore, who was in DSS detention facility in Abuja at the time of this report may be charged for treason if there is sufficient evidence linking him to plans to overthrow a democratically elected government.
